Can Religious Freedom Survive Same-Sex Marriage? | Matthew J. Franck at First Things

    Matthew J. Franck at First Things: Zoll: In your view, is there any value for faith groups to pursuing religious exemptions as a stand-alone effort–meaning independent from defending marriage? Franck: In my view, such efforts are a rearguard action retreating from a field one has surrendered. But we have not lost the fight for the truth about marriage, and surrendering the field is premature. I continue to hope that it will never finally be necessary, and I work to make that hope a reality.

    The State: But the Palmetto Family Council has its own legal team ready to counter any effort to overturn the amendment. Director Oran Smith says he relies on a statewide network of attorneys trained by the Alliance Defending Freedom, a national legal group that, according to its website, is devoted to “religious liberty, the sanctity of life and marriage and family.” Smith said he does not think his group would intervene in specific cases of same-sex couples seeking federal benefits. But it would intervene if “we saw a pattern of the courts not respecting the marriage amendment in South Carolina.”
